Bourgogne Montre-Cul

This is a historical terroir of the former vineyard of Dijon, which was already known under the Dukes of Burgundy.
This wine has been made plot by plot since the time of Bernard Bouvier’s father.
The etymology of the name, linking it to the possibility of seeing under the women's skirts while they worked, explains quite well how steeply this hill slopes.
The 50-year-old vines of this plot (0.37 hectare/ 0.9 acre) grow on limestone scree soil, producing beautifully ripe grapes with fine tannins.
Bourgogne Montre-Cul is a cuvée with expressive aromas of ripe red and black fruits. With its elegant tannic structure, it is a perfect introduction to the villages of the Côte de Nuits.
Although it can be tasted from an early age, old bottles kept by the family show that the best vintages can be aged for 10 to 20 years.
Depending on the vintage, we use 50% whole-bunch fermentation.
The wine is aged for about 12 months in barrels (with 15% of new barrels) and 6 months in stainless steel tanks.

Charcuterie (cold cuts), braised meat dishes, and regional cuisine go well with this wine. Grilled meat, especially beef, will blend harmoniously with the Bourgogne Montre-Cul.
